Chewbacchus Chic: Intergalactic Krewe's Fashion Show to Strut on the Spacewalk

by Brad Rhines

Expect the Big Top to look more like the Mos Eisley Cantina this weekend, as the sci fi-curious members of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus are set to step out with “Set Your Phasers to Stunning,” a fashion show for the Queen Amidala in all of us. The Mardi Gras krewe's coming-out event gives krewe members a chance to show off their costumes, and provides an opportunity for the rest of NOLA’s drunken nerds to join in on the fun. With a bigger, longer, more prominent Krewe of Chewbacchus on tap for the Feb. 18 march, even the inahabitants of the Outer Rim and Bayous of Dagobah are expressing an interest in coming into town early for the show.
